They’re presenting us for a month of cover-themed nights every Wednesday in January 2015 at one of Toronto’s legendary roots music bars. Special guests Devin CuddyOh SusannaSimone Schmidtand Old Man Leudecke will play deep cuts and popular numbers from an assortment of classic artists of the 70s and 80s alongside the rebels in NCR.

Serving up some saucy holiday hits on The Bluegrass Situation!

Hey, it’s that time of year again… For our friends down south it’s Thanksgiving this week and Christmas is just around the corner about every time of the year anyhow. Check out John Showman’s recipe for cranberry sauce featured this month on The Bluegrass Situation. “Roots culture redefined,” indeed on this great site about everything bluegrass right down to the food.

“Lost highway” video premieres on CBC Music // Fall tour dates!

We are returning to the US this month for a busy fall of dates supporting the album Ghost of Your Charms, including appearances at Nashville’s Americanafest and Raleigh’s Wide World of Bluegrass.

The latest video is for Ghost track “Lost Highway” premieres exclusively today on CBC Music and is directed by Juno-award winner Christopher Mills (Blue Rodeo, Tragically Hip, Interpol, The Joy Formidable). A nod to legendary Canadian filmmaker/animator Norman McLaren in the year he would have turned 100, “Lost Highway” employs animation techniques akin to McLaren’s “Neighbours” in a Toronto cityscape that recalls Cronenberg’s Crash. Ghostly dancers soar in the air through neon streams, floating along Lakeshore and the Gardiner while NCR cook up a bluesy sludge cauldron of rock.

“Lost Highway was a really fun opportunity to mash contemporary dance together with lo-fi, hyperactive, grrrl-power fuelled animation,” says director Christopher Mills. “I got to build an imaginary chase sequence, using a few tools inspired by Mr. McLaren’s films. Long live rock, long live women who don’t take no mess, long live the NFB (National Film Board of Canada).”
